The dependency of the -dev package on
	libghc6-filestore-data (= ${source:Version})
is not really required, as the files are not needed during package
build. (It does not do much harm, though).

The problem is that such a dependency will have to be added to gitit, so
debian/rules of gitit will have to figure out the correct version, and
install it into the Depends line via a substvars.
